Push Puppets @ SPACE Friday Feb 17. The new band I’ve joined has it’s first practically-in-Chicago show. A powerful live act with great musicians featuring top-shelf pop songwriting by Erich Specht. Sample a variety of songs from the brand new album “Allegory Grey” on BANDCAMP. Joining us on the bill are the wonderful duo of Rachel Drew & Rob Newhouse. As of this writing there are still limited seats left at SPACE here. The new record will be available at on limited edition PURPLE vinyl. I highly recommend attending this show!
Here is a 3 min video of Erich & Tommi playing “Small Doses” by Push Puppets acoustically.

Thanks to everyone who came to hear Alton Smith & Friends big Elton John show at the City Winery. (Photo by Kat) Also thanks to folks who braved the bad weather for a Jarvis Square Pottery experimental duo show I did with percussionist Tim Mulvenna. An electric guitar & percussion improvisation from that snowy night, shot by photographer David Sameshima can be found here! The video is about 9 minutes. Some of David’s photos are below!
Early warming warning… Phil Angotti & Tommi Zender duo show @ Sketchbook Brewery, Sunday March 12, 3-5pm, no cover, donation encouraged.
As always I am thankful for your support. My music is available to sample or purchase in physical format via my BANDCAMP page. I hope to see you at the upcoming Push Puppets show, a workshop or future concert! Peace. -Tommi
